In this episode, we listen to an online panel discussion hosted by VANSA, the Visual Arts Network of South Africa. At the beginning of June, VANSA hosted an online dialogue with arts practitioners whose practices span various disciplines. They shared their thoughts and experiences of this moment, their reflections on navigating precarity, how they are surviving creatively, and what new or different possibilities exist for us as a visual arts sector.
The panel was hosted by VANSA director Refilwe Nkomo @flokomo, with panelists:
Naadira Patel (Artist | Researcher | Designer | Project Manager | Sessional Lecturer) @studiostudioworkwork
Mika Conradie (Curator | Researcher | Project Manager) @soft_wave @pool_space
Masimba Sasa (Photographer | Filmmaker | Lecturer | Trainer) @masimbasasa
Thato Mogotsi (Curator | Scholar | Lecturer | Trainer) @mogotsi.thato
